HOLGATE BREWHOUSE MILLENNIUM FALCON EIPA

Holgate Brewhouse Millennium Falcon Emperial IPA. Nothing to do with Star Wars apart from the puns. Millennium is to celebrate their 1,000th brew and Millennium hops, Falconer comes the Facloners Flight hops, named after the late well regarded Oregon brewer Glen Falconer. A bit of Galaxy for bite and to keep the pun going.

I might have let this warm a bit too much, but the initial aroma was sweet floral hops. The flavour is all resinous hops and alcohol. This uses pale malt to allow the hops to dominate and while you can taste the alcohol it is more whiskey than toffee.

I like big hoppy beers, but I like them balanced. Maybe there is not enough resin to counter the lack of malty mouthfeel. Just like the movies, I was a little disappointed.

 

7/10
